Power Always Proves Intelligence, that's what the abbreviation for P.A.P.I. stands for and will be the new moniker for Queensbridge legend Noreaga. In a recent interview with MTV P.A.P.I. explained the reason for his new name change.

“Sometimes if you’re lost, the best way to find where you’re at is to go to the beginning. My mother doesn’t even call me Victor, my father has never called me Victor, my teachers didn’t even call me Victor… My name in Lefrak City and my name in Queens is actually P.A.P.I., it’s not even N.O.R.E.”
